    April 16th role call - who's with me!

    Second attempt at post today :/ So, I did it. I cut all my hair off. I do believe almost 12 inches. I also splurged and bought 100 worth of a hair system by aveida for thinning hair. My hair seems thicker and the thinning has slowed. Not sure if it's because the weight of my hair is gone. Only time will tell. I went through my closet and had a mini breakdown when I realized a shrank out of some of my favorites without realizing it. I can't afford to replace a whole closet of clothes at this time. It was nice to realize though that the cute cheap clothing stores that cater to the tiny includes myself now. Yay. Also, my local goodwill has high end pants for five and seven dollars. Another yay. No more tears. Speaking of tears. My period seems to be like clockwork since starting birthcontrol. Does this mean I'm more fertile? It's never worked like that before. I'm not ready for all that. I'm now 194 Highest 305 Surgery day 271 I've lost a small person!! Still struggling with taking Vitamins. I bought a bunch of liquid wellesse from eBay for cheap. I pray I can hold them down. This sliming crap is for the birds too. I can only do bites the size of my thumb nail and about a minute a part. I miss eating normal bites. :/. It's all worth it though. Happy hump day everyone! Huggers!

    I'm on a stall. Still 205 and hanging. Been working with my trainer four times a week starting this week. I already see a huge difference in the last three weeks in my skin but still not where I want it to be strengthwise but hey I'm a work in progress! So, I'm really happy I started dating. Since meeting Saturday me and "the man" haven't spent but one day apart. I am totally smitten. I still haven't told him about surgery. He has made lil comments about how I don't eat much. He hasn't quized me. I think it may come up tonight. I'm sooo dang nervous. He is on my Facebook and said how great I look now compared to my old picks. I don't know why it's such a big issue for me. If be okay telling him if I had a kidney, ovary, or gull bladder removed. Why is it such a big issue that I had the majority of my stomach removed? It's awesome though that we both love sushi. He orders like three different things and I eat a piece if two of each and he kills the rest. Teamwork. Lol. I'm having a hard time recognizing myself in the mirror lately. I can't believe how thin I've gotten. I'm getting upset having to keep buying new clothes. As a person who doesn't like shopping I feel like I'm doing it constantly. Thinking about finding some stuff I like and buying it in the next three sizes down. How is life everyone? I know I sound negative but life is actually really amazing. I feel so blessed. I'm ok with stalls, I'll tell the man tonight and hey it's my insides that matter, and I guess I'll find someone who loves to shop and pay them to do it for me. Hahaha

    Yep. Hairloss has started here too. I'm afraid to brush it at all. I only wash it every three days to avoid the shower loss which always seems like more. So......I have been dating like crazy. Three to four a week at times. I FINALLY MET SOMEONE! but.....I haven't told them about surgery :/. It's still really premature but I'm afraid to tell this guy who seriously loves to eat all the time that eating is no longer my favorite thing to do. Sigh. This is the first time I have any fear about sharing my transformation story.

I looked at my sister and said "I have a hard time believing I'm this thin" it feels like I'm picking out clothes for someone else and seeing someone else in the mirror. I feel pretty awesome!

    . Just remember your body has no clue what's going on just like you. It's in a constant state of shock. When I weigh everyday the scale is all over the plAce. I only weigh on check in day now. Focus on NSVs for now. It will happen sweets. just keep making healthy choices. I have banned myself from elevators this week. Next week I'm going to park the furthest from the doors to places. Let's hope I don't die of heat stroke. Lol. Hugs!

They say the largest weightloss happens in the first six months. I'm not really concerned about the number more so how I feel. I'm feeling fabulous! I have gotten rid of almost all my clothes. I'm going to have to start running around naked soon. Lol!!! Last go round I bought uncomfy tight clothes and I do believe the poop pouch in the butt of my pants are back! Going to wait til something falls around my ankles to go shopping again! Hugs my wl fam! happy Friday!!!

    Welcome josh. Melodica I don't really enjoy cooking as most and when I do cook I cook for an army. I'm thinking now that I can actually eat without vomiting this last week to commit to one day a month and making stuff I can freeze and nuke later. Eggfaces blog has a ton of Protein muffin type things you can freeze. Sounds easy enough to me. I also bought 30 minutes or less meals and marked the ones I could eat. Icouldn't take Vitamins until last week without getting sick. Since I have started to gag them down what a difference! I really started to feel down the last few weeks and the fatigue made it hard to get out of bed. A total omg wth did I do to myself feeling kicked in. The thought of maybe unhealthy and fat was better than vomiting all day long but now that I have concentrated on vits and eating reeeeeeeally slow I'm back to almost feeling like my happy awesome self! I'm sure you will snap back soon sweets. Just keep telling yourself this is a long slow race. It will not be easy because if it was, we would of never been the size we were but it will be worth it. I for one think I will appreciate it even more since it wasn't easy and I did have so many bumps. Not that easy doesn't appeal still. Baby steps and baby bites. Have a great weekend!

    Hahaha , mysleeveI only sit with my legs crossed now. Seems to be the only comfy position. LOL! YAY us. A little NSV that I hadnt even noticed til someone else brought it to my attention too! BAM! We rock!
  23. Hello Hello my beatiful people. I have been away so long. I havent had access to an actual computer and lets just face it, the BP App stinks! Anyways five days of vitamins down and no vomiting. I am so excited that three days ago I was able to eat regular food with no vomiting and kept it down. YAY me. I have really had a tough go of it and remained positive until a couple of weeks ago when i was just so fatigued. I did just buy a house and got a new job so that might be the reason why. My life is grand as of today. Baby steps and baby bites is my new moto! :)

    1) 5'9" 290 2) 271 surgery day 3)43 since surgery day 62 since start of program 77 from highest (77 is what my 7 year old weighs!!!ive lost a human being! ) 4)190 realistic 170 ideal 5)I am on day five if my vitamins! No vomiting! I ate a cheese enchilada! Okay I ate a third of it but still. Lol I'm finally able to eat real food. I learned my tummy can only handle bites about the size if my thumb nail, chew chew chew, and next bite about two minutes later. What a lesson on PATIENCE this has been! Phew I have made it through. Starting to feel back to normal just a smidge. Two dates this week too. Yay me! Since I'm so open about surgery I get daily cheers and omg your skinny! Feels fab! 6)I'm still battling fatigue and stress but everyday I feel a little but better and that is what I keep reminding myself. I have had pain for a long time which is gone. A little mental challenge is okay as long as I see a light at this very long tunnel I can handle all of the little obstacles to get there! Baby steps! Baby steps and apparently baby bites. Hugs my bp fam!
